Conditional Format Help

Hello,

I am having trouble with my conditional formatting. I currently have the following rule
=(G8>H8)*(LEN(G8)<>0)

It works as long as G8 is blank. However it won’t work because I have an index match formula in G8 which is

=IF(ISERROR(INDEX(‘example'!$A$5:$U$97,$A8,G$2))," ",INDEX('example'!$A$5:$U$97,$A8,G$2))

So even though G8 is blank the conditional formatting is still picking up the formula as a value, how do I work around this??

Try this

=(G8>H8)*(G8<>0)

instead of

=(G8>H8)*(LEN(G8)<>0)
